In this somewhat convoluted tale, FBI Agent Web London is point man of the super elite Hostage Rescue Team. He becomes the "last man standing" when the rest of his team is gunned down in an alley during a drug bust gone wrong. With the help of psychiatrist Dr. Claire Daniels, London begins to peel away years of repression that may have led to his collapse. Meanwhile, he insists upon tracking down the culprits. This is a story long on hardware (extended sections devoted to guns and ammo) but short on humanity and sympathetic characters. Jason Culp helps the story out with great attention to minor characters, accents, and attitude. Small-time hoods and other FBI agents created with wry humor and wonderful timing help to bring sparkle to this otherwise flat and overly long story. D.G.
